I believe this is the case for which the typical sample configurations 
apply.  They don't use stratum zero, although they don't use as high a 
number as for a time island.  They don't use zero because,  with this 
configuration, ntpd doesn't know when the clock has failed, whereas, 
with a real clock driver it should.
